The Bay of Fundy also boosts a rich tradition of shipbuilding.In the 1800s, wooden coastal schooners were built on the shore to carry coal and mill stones to the United States.Large-scale industrialization came to Cumberland County under the General Mining Association, which held the rights to the area's coal fields.Commencing at Joggins in 1847, production increased after the construction of the Intercolonial Railway in the 1870s, followed by the 1887 opening of the Joggins Railway, a 12-mile rail line from mines at Joggins to the Intercolonial mainline at Maccan, through River Hebert.Situated on the Cumberland Basin, a sub-basin of the Bay of Fundy, Joggins was a long established coal mining area.Its coal seams which are exposed along the shore of the Cumberland Basin were exploited as early as 1686 by local Acadian settlers and by the British garrison at Annapolis Royal in 1715.French-speaking Acadians returned from New Brunswick, and were joined by Irish and Scottish immigrants.

Recently dendrochronology had been employed to date the timber pit props.The Bay of Fundy has the highest tides in the world.Visitors can walk on the ocean floor at low tide, or go rafting on the tidal bore.The fossils consist mainly of ferns, prehistoric trees and early sea life.The daily high tide erodes the cliff, the stone fossils fall out of the coal and are left on the shore when the tide recedes.
